The Punchbowl

Author/Submitted by: Jo Anne Merrill
Servings: 16
Categories: Holidays / Non-Alcoholic Beverages / Punch Recipes

6  ounces  pineapple juice, frozen concentrate, thawed
6  ounces  orange juice, frozen concentrate, thawed
6  ounces  cranberry juice
2  cups  strawberries, frozen
1    banana
6  ounces  lemonade, frozen concentrate
2 1/2  cups  cold water
30  ounces  club soda, 1 bottle
30  ounces  ginger ale, 1 bottle
2  bottles  7-Up

* All frozen concentrates are to be thawed partially. ** Use as much 7-UP or equal amounts of other soft drinks to make the punch to your taste. 1. Using a blender, blend the juices a little at a time, pouring into large punchbowl or other large container. Blend the banana and strawberries only until coarse blended, not pureed. Mix the ice water in the punch bowl with other ingredients and stir to blend. 2. Just before serving, add the club soda, ginger ale and enough 7-Up to suit your taste. Stir gently to mix all juices from the sediment on bottom of bowl. Serve this as is or over ice.

You may wish to make an ice ring to float in this for a decorative and festive touch. Using a ring mold, freeze a shallow layer of water, put fruits in a pattern on top of ice, pour a thin layer of water, refreeze. Repeat these steps until you have built up the ice ring and made several layers of fruit designs. Unmold the ring and place in punch bowl just before serving. Use juice instead of water for ice ring if you wish.
